This Thursday there will be our last class in the gym in Zhongshan Park! We’ll do our last roda there. I would like to see everyone there for a last tribute to our beloved gym. After we might go to the Xinjiang restaurant and order the whole lamb…
This Saturday 1st of August at 5:00pm class will be in a gym near Zhongshan Park. Address is: n.299 Xuanhua Lu (near Dingxi Lu), Bld. 4. (una tantum: it’s only for this Saturday).
Starting from Monday 3rd of August classes will take place in the gym in Kangding Lu (address and map is here). The only difference with the old schedule will be Wednesday (we’ll start at 8:00pm instead of 8:15pm) and Saturday (we’ll start 4:30pm instead of 5:00pm).
Should you have any doubt, read again this post.
We’re still looking for a venue starting from September so please keep your eyes opened!
Just to clarify that we will keep the same schedule in the new gym: Intermediate classes on Monday and Wednesday 8:00pm-9:45pm and beginner classes on Tuesday and Thursday 8:00pm-9:45pm. Open class every Saturday from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.
We will start using the new space next Monday 3rd of August.
This Saturday 1st of August at 5:00pm class will be in a gym near Zhongshan Park.
Address is: Xuanhua Lu (near Dingxi Lu) n.299, Bld. 4. (una tantum: it’s only for Saturday class). [ONLY This Saturday 1st of August class will be in a gym in Xuanhua Lu n.299 (by Dingxi Lu), 5:00pm]
Address: 1147 Kangding Rd, Bld E, 1F, 102, by Wuning Lu 康定路1147号（近武宁路）， E幢，1楼，102室 Closest subway station: Jing’An Temple (15 minutes walking distance).
Starting from next week the schedule of the classes will change! There will be an intermediate class on Wednesday starting at 20:15 in the other room of the same gym; Thursday will become beginner class.
New schedule: Monday: 20:00-21:30 Intermediate class Tuesday: 20:00-21:30 Beginner class Wednesday: 20:15:21:45 Intermediate class Thursday: 20:00-21:30 Beginner class Saturday: 17:00-19:15 Open class
Only Wednesday class will be held in the other room with the wooden floor.
Again, everyone is invited to come to all the classes but beginners should give the priority to beginner classes; the ones with more than one year of capoeira should give the priority to intermediate classes.
